Knicks, bad performance leads to defeat against the Nuggets

The result of the first quarter is enough to understand the rest of the game: Nikola Jokic 24, New York Knicks 23. A dominant performance of the number 1 candidate for the MVP award, who alone voiced the opponents for points in the area in the first part of the game and controlled the rest of the match at will, giving his team a 10th win in their last 12 games and hooking the Clippers into third place in the Western Conference.

To understand how badly the Knicks evening went, it is enough to know that the guests started with three fouls in the first 22 seconds of the game and Tom Thibodeau took a technical after 28 seconds from the start of the game, and that from there get even worse. The Knicks finished 4/24 from the field in the first leg of play and remained below 100 for the first time in a month, with 14 points each for Julius Randle, Derrick Rose, Reggie Bullock and RJ Barrett in an evening of 38.6% of the team.
